General Mills’ Strong Brands Protect It From Trade-Down to Private Label, but Shares Fairly Valued

Rebecca Scheuneman, CFA Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Rebecca Scheuneman, CFA |

We think General Mills’ strong brands (a factor that underpins its narrow moat) are helping to strengthen its elasticities as well as the firm’s minimal exposure to categories with a heavy private-label tilt (less than 30% of sales by our estimate). General Mills reported 10% organic sales growth in its fiscal first quarter (price/mix up 15%, volumes down 5%), topping our 9% forecast. We think the firm is also benefiting from consumers switching to at-home food consumption to help combat inflation, per management commentary and restaurant traffic data, which has softened in recent months.
